Sweet Quinoa Pudding
I think it is safe to say that Quinoa is actually becoming a stape in North America, Europe and ever so slowly in Asia. Now, people might say that this is a very expensive ingredient to use, and locally i would have to agree with you. However, quinoa has been consumed for years in South America and is actually quite fairly priced over there. But of course, things are packaged, labelled as healthy and then flown to foreign countries, making them gain in value. The more we consume it though, i’m pretty sure people will try and pull down the prices in the coming years.
Here is a quick recipe for a hot sweet quinoa pudding that is a good replacement for people who do not want to eat wheat or oats.
Take 1 cup of soaked and drained quinoa.
Boil 3 cups of milk with 1 tsp of sugar (could be 2 tbsps of honey), 2 drops of vanilla essence (or a scrapped vanilla bean).
Put the quinoa in the milk, bring to a simmer and cook through gently (20mins)
Chop up some mixed fruit dressed with some citrus juice.
Toss it all together. Sweeten if needed.
